Toronto Eaton Centre Store Closing - 70% Off Lowest Ticketed Price

Savings:
70%
Retailer:
J.Crew
I couldn't find a thread for this, but it seems to be well known. Please merge if it's a repost.

Selection was fair for Vans shoes ($79.99 > $23.70) and pretty good for "770" stretch chinos ($98 > $29.40) this morning. That's only 1/5th of the cost of a comparable Lululemon ABC pant. The selection for shirts was slim. The sale people said it was very busy on the weekend. 70% off the lowest ticketed prices at the Toronto Eaton Centre and possibly Fairview Mall, if that is still open.

My receipt did not say sales were final, but had the usual "30 days of original purchase."

J. Crew Closes More Canadian Stores

The future of US fashion brand J.Crew in Canada is in question after it recently closed its CF Chinook Centre store in Calgary recently. The brand has closed several Canadian locations over the past couple of years in Toronto (CF Fairview and CF Markville) and at West Edmonton Mall, and sources are saying more closures are to come.

The brand is struggling south of the border, though it’s seeing some attention with news reports of celebs such as Megan Markle wearing the brand. Nevertheless, J. Crew terminated its Canadian PR contract last year and other retailers are said to be eyeing its valuable real estate — if there’s one thing J. Crew did well, it picked great retail spaces in malls and on high streets. Rumours persist that Canada Goose is looking at J. Crew’s CF Toronto Eaton Centre location, for example.

J. Crew still operates a network of full-priced stores as well as outlets in Canada, at least for now.

Thread Summary
Toronto Eaton Centre Dec 31 @ ~10am
* Vans, because that's all I looked at, although others were looking at more formal shoes. Men sizes 8.5-12, depending on the model.
* 770 Stretch Chino, lots of sizes and colours including those in the 32" to 34" waists which I assume is the popular size range.
* Mens PJ bottoms, L to XXL
* Suits - I saw a 36" jacket, not my size but only because I flipped through one out of curiosity. $558 x 0.30 = $167.40
* Dress Shirts - Scattered, the shirts were not in the right size location, so I gave up looking.

Lots of stuff. I bought 5 suits for $300. All 100% wool!

Got to fake it ‘til I make it! Look like a baller on a poor man’s budget.

Good to know that there are some RFDers that understand English... that’s correct bro. Tax was another $39 just to be totally accurate.

Not surprised at all and good riddance. I used to absolutely love the brand and literally my closet is full of their stuff, but around 3-4 years ago their quality tanked and prices went up. Really pissed me off so I did some digging and found out i wasn't the only one.

At 70% its a great deal for some suits.

Very slim pickings for women. Lots of pants left for men. I got 4 of my exact size (34x30) and heard there were more pants in stock. Thanks op.

To be clear, it's just the Eaton Centre location closing, on January 7th, and has 70% off all items in the store. Items will be final sale, with the receipt stamped as such, and won't be returnable at any store at all.

The Fairview location closed some time ago, and the locations at Sherway and Bloor remain open.

I imagine the leasing costs for the Eaton Centre location must have been very high. It is/was a HUGE location.

Did they have any suits left in 38/M or any Vans in 8?
